The church pretty much knows what sin is. The ability to define sin has never been the church's problem. But things get messy when we start looking at the deeper issues surrounding the one thing that separates humans from their Creator. So...what does sin really mean to God? How do we deal with sin's presence n our lives? How can we rise above sin and be transformed by God? At the same time, how can we embrace our humanity and learn to live triumphantly (and without guilt) in the kingdom of God? This volume 5 from Highway video, A Perfect Life? tackles the issue of sin from a healthy, holistic, biblically faithful perspective so that teenagers can dive into the subject without drowning in over simplistic "just-say-no" responses to the sin that constantly undermines our spiritual lives. This video curriculum introduces students to a God who continually pursues us as a passionate lover despite our perpetually fickle hearts...who knows that living well in his kingdom mean much, much more than frail attempts at correct behavior...who know guilt and repentance cannot coexist in his children's lives...who loves us so much that he laid down his life for us. Includes leader's guide and 25-minutes DVD.
